Views on Sustainability

The OPEN HOUSE Group promotes sustainability aiming to contribute to the realization of a sustainable society through our business activities while achieving sustainable corporate growth.

As stated in our corporate philosophy, the Group has been pursuing houses that customers want honestly and constantly, while working on our business with the mission of “leaving a Japan for the next generation where working people can afford houses in urban areas.”

By providing affordable housing in urban areas, we aim to fulfill needs for both social and business value by creating shared value.
In addition, the Group is keenly aware of the social responsibility associated with our business activities and our contributions toward achieving SDGs, and we are promoting initiatives through our business activities for issues related to ESG (environment, social and governance).
